When I first got the email from Josh, I almost deleted it.
Truth be told, I get an awful lot of email from small coffee companies wanting me to write about them.
Don’t get me wrong. I love hearing from coffee entrepreneurs. But sometimes I’m just too busy to write about what they’re doing and publish it on this site.
And recently I’ve been super busy with a number of projects. So Josh nearly slipped through the cracks.
I’m glad he didn’t.
First, because I really like his coffee business, Coletti Coffee. It’s all about pour over coffee. I love the gear they sell, the design of their site and all the great information they share.
But that’s just the start of it.
Because Coletti Coffee wasn’t created and launched to make Josh and his family rich. It was launched to support urgent and worthy causes.
In particular, Josh and his wife Kate want to help a friend - Anne - who is working to rescue girls from human trafficking overseas.
You can read more about their story on the Coletti Coffee ‘About’ page.
The point is... I have a daughter, and four granddaughters. The crime of trafficking young girls is so abhorrent to me, I hardly dare imagine what these girls go through.
Fortunately, there are people like Josh’s friend who have the courage to face this problem head-on, and are working to rescue these girls.
From the day they launched Coletti Coffee, Josh and Kate committed to donating all the profits from the business to fund not only Anne’s project, but also other non-profits working on worthy causes.
Not a bad reason to check these guys out
And here’s another reason... They are giving away a 10 Piece Pour Over Set every Sunday until Christmas 2016.
You can enter for a chance to win here. (I have a feeling it's for US residents only.)
If you’re interested in upping your game when it comes to pour over, these guys really do have a lot to offer.
